    EMotionally happy to wish Henrik Fisker best of luck on his second attempt, yet before they can really 'challenge' T≡SLA, a lot of water will flow under the bridge..! ;)

    Looks like a disgruntled Smart designer decided to go take a bet somewhere else... :D
    But, hey, for $5,300 in the congested & polluted Chinese metropolises, why not?

    Had not caught up with this, you...?

    https://futurism.com/nissans-2018-leaf-will-cost-5000-less-than-teslas-model-3/amp/

    Note the somewhat disingenuous comparison between the expected 40 kWh battery for the new Leaf with the larger longer range (est.) 75 kWh for the 310 miles Model 3 though the title really suggests a side by side with the base 220 miles version which will start @ $35k...
    You would almost think some journalists take us all for fools, no?

    Or...are we...?! :confused:
    :D

    The rEVolution is well underway...

    Another EU country draws a line in the sand: no more new ICE cars sold by 2032!



    Well done... even the Loch Ness 'monster might show up to join the party by then! :p

    This lack of vision, or of technology leadership, or maybe of both... is kinda odd for the Nagoya giant, isn't it? :rolleyes:

    Evannex aptly relays Jalopnik's denunciation to the deliberately misleading 'electrified' label ICE makers are touting everywhere thinking they can fool us all. It won't work. :rolleyes:

    And I could see 30-40% of these to be from T≡SLA... conservatively... ;)

    Renault-Nissan(Mitsubishi), probably one of the most seriously committed previously ICE carmaker out there, maybe with Daimler...

    Complementary article on Mazda's 'electrification' plans... 2030?! The Jeopardy question: 'what is a laggard?' :D

    Talk of news that is likely to suck some air... :D

    Dyson to Spend £1 Billion Making ‘Radical’ Electric Car

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-26/dyson-to-spend-1-billion-making-its-own-electric-car

    Seriously, this was mooted some time ago as part of the Sakti3 purchase by Dyson from Ann Marie Sastry 18 months ago... big additional commitment on their part...
